Portsmouth, VA - (November 26, 2020) - The Prince of Peace Church (POPCVA) in Portsmouth, Virginia, demonstrated their commitment to supporting the community by providing 15 local families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic with $50.00 gift cards. These gift cards will assist the families in their preparations for a special Thanksgiving dinner amidst the challenges brought about by the ongoing global health crisis.
The outreach and community ministry of POPCVA organized this charitable initiative to address the unique difficulties faced by families in the Hampton Roads area during the holiday season. Recognizing the disruption caused by COVID-19 to traditional celebrations, POPCVA aimed to make a positive impact by providing assistance to those in need.
"We're the little church on the corner, but we have the biggest heart," said Prince of Peace Church Pastor, Brenda Y. Williams. "During these challenging times, it's crucial for us to come together as a community and extend a helping hand to those who have been impacted by the pandemic. We are honored to support these families and contribute to making their Thanksgiving a special occasion."
The success of this giveaway would not have been possible without the generous contributions of sponsors and donors. POPCVA extends its deepest gratitude to all those who participated, demonstrating their commitment to supporting the local community and spreading joy during this holiday season.
